Chocolate fudge cake
60g choc finely chopped
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup boiling water
6 egg whites
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup plain flour sifted
Preheat oven 170c line tin (I never do that)
place choc and cocoa in a small bowl pour over boiling water and stir til choc melts and mixture is smooth
Using and electric mixer beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time and continue beating until sugar has completely dissolved and the meringue is thick and glossy. Add the choc mixture and mix to combine. Use a metal spoon to gently fold in flour until just combined.
Pour into tin bake for 45 mins or until firm.
The book says to cool in oven with door ajar but I never do that image.
I serve this with a berry coulis image
